I’ve slowly been working on some fun DIY nursery projects over the past few months to make Lolo’s nursery a wonderland of whimsy. There is no particular theme for her room but I will say pennants, posies and pom poms are well represented.
The first project was dressing up our curtains. I liked the look of our office curtains so I snatched up some butter colored ones and added pink pom poms to girly them up a bit. The curtain rods are just wood dowels striped in washi tape.
I do love the colors and textures of yarn but don’t have the patience to be a knitter so I resort to wrapping. I got this large letter M at a crafts supply store and popped over to pinterest to learn how to make felt flowers.
Big surprise ~ another yarn project. This mobile doesn’t have sound or light, but Lolo does love watching it. I chose the yarn based on color but the textures are all a little different which I think makes the mobile a bit more playful. I had a general plan for this project, but decided on lengths and sizes of pom poms as I went along. The base is a 14 inch embroidery hoop.
And now for the pennants… because they make everything more festive! This fabric pack actually inspired the colors of the nursery. I love how these fat quarter assortments have a color theme with complimentary patterns. A perfect place to build a color story for a room.
I’m not a huge fan of sewing, which is why I love stitch witchery! I grabbed this pattern, a sharp scissors, iron and was off!
Now that you’ve got the behind the scenes craft pass… stay tuned for the nursery tour tomorrow!
